Dave Luehr’s Elite Body Shop Academy Launches In-Person Nashville Workshops


Dave Luehr, collision repair industry expert and founder of Elite Body Shop Solutions and the Elite Body Shop Academy, is excited to announce the launch of in-person Nashville, TN, training workshops, designed to offer in-depth, action-oriented operational training to body shop owners, managers and their administrative teams. 

The workshop topics and schedule can be found here

Over the past five years, the academy has become known for affordable and impactful online courses such as "Operations Monthly LIVE" and "Dominating the Competition." Many shops have seen transformational results when applying the concepts in these courses.

“Online training is an incredibly powerful tool for shops to gain knowledge without having to leave the office,” said Luehr. “However, it doesn’t replace the synergy of in-person training or the ability to interact one-on-one with the trainers and get feedback on your shop’s unique needs. In-depth workshops are a longtime dream of mine, and I am thrilled to launch this new arm of the Elite Body Shop Academy with the help of my team and participation from some world-class trainers.”

Each workshop varies in length of training and price, but they all have a limited number of available seats to allow for more one-on-one interaction with trainers, ensuring comprehension and customized action plans. 

“Training is only as good as its implementation at the shop,” said Luehr. “I’ve heard from too many smart operators who left conferences excited about new knowledge, but unable to apply it on the shop floor. Our goal is to help every participant walk away not only with a wealth of knowledge, but also a detailed action plan they can immediately start implementing back at the shop.”
